What You Should Know About Theme Park Liability

Florida is a global leader in amusement park attractions, and occasionally accidents occur on these premises. If you ever suffer an injury at a theme park, you might be wondering what sort of liability issues there are at play in the case.

Here’s a quick overview of what you should know about theme park liability for injuries on their premises.

Premises liability issues

Accidents at theme parks fall into the general category of premises liability. These cases involve conditions or uses of buildings, land or premises result in injury. This could include theme park rides, or just some of the general conditions of the parks and their facilities.

A person who is at an amusement park will either be considered an invitee (someone allowed to be on the site/has permission to be there) or a trespasser (someone on the property without permission).

Theme parks have a responsibility to keep the park in reasonably safe condition to keep their guests and workers safe. If the defendant in a premises liability case either knew or should have known about a dangerous condition at the park, it is their responsibility to warn guests of that dangerous condition, and to resolve the problem within a reasonable timeframe. Failure to do so can result in the property owner being held liable for resulting accidents.

However, property owners (including theme parks) do not owe this duty of care to trespassers. Trespassers who are injured on theme park property cannot recover compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.
